Data concerning 15 consecutive cases of single exposure of the skin or eyes during work to paraquat solutions are presented. Urine and serum were analyzed for paraquat in all these cases at the laboratory of the Israel Poison Information Center. From these data it is apparent that a single exposure of healthy skin to paraquat solutions caused only local lesions. No systemic effect was detected in these patients.
